Ethereal Photographs of Salt Flats

Photographer Murray Fredericks took sixteen solo trips over eight years to the center of Lake Eyre in Australia, the largest lake in the country and one that forms salt flats every year when the water evaporates. These salt flats provide a perfectly flat, featureless landscape that extends to infinity in every direction, and allow for beautiful abstract photographs.

Check out the rest of the photographs in the project, titled “Salt”, here. Fredericks is also the same artist that created the time-lapse of clouds forming that we shared a while back.
